    How often do you wax your favorite car?

    Okay, friends. Time to 'fess up. How often do you wax your favorite car? Do you like to wrap your arms around your car and wax it frequently, or do you try to eek out that last week, that last day, that last minute of protection? Do you wax your car because you see that it needs it, or do you wax it because you want to keep it it looking at its very best? Which is more important to you, beauty or durability?

    I'm saying once every 2 months...that has been an average for the last 5 or 6 years. Now that my car was just repainted last month and it now has a garage to call home, it might be every few weeks. I've wanted a garage for YEARS and now I finally get one, so excited!

    Every two months here too.

    I like to wax for both shine and protection, but I usually re-apply before the previous layer has worn off, so that probably means I do it for "beauty" more than protection.

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Try to do it once every three months. I've only put 1000 miles on my care this year and it's always parked inside.

    Re: How often do you wax your favorite car?

    I spray wax probably once a week, sometimes 2 times, sometimes I miss it for a week or so.

    I do a legitimate paste or liquid wax application probably once every 2 months. I Last Touch, followed by UQD every other day on average.

    Needless to say, it's not often you see me cruisin' without some obscene amount of shine around me

    once every three or four months, because she sits outside...and I know she'll be dirty soon. If I had a garage it would probably be alittle more often, I realize that may sound backwards

    I checked every 2 months. Got to get it early before there is no protection on it.
